Off-Season updae #3

After the Gaints re-signed P Javier Lopez,

On Wednesday (11/27/13), the Giants designated C Johnny Monell and OF Francisco Peguero for assignment. The team claimed P Jose De Paula off of waivers from San Diego and signed P Eric Cordier of Kansas City.

The team's transaction wire also lists P Jose Mijares, who is arbitration-eligible, as electing free agency. That would mean the Giants non-tendered Mijares, although that is not officially listed.

The reports also indicate P Ryan Vogelsong will re-sign. When that becomes official, the Giants will need to clear another spot on the 40-man roster.
